Propositions on Disappearance III

Choreography: Yen-Fang YU

Propositions on Disappearance III is, as the third episode of the series, taking a retrospective look at choreographer Yen-Fang YU’s personal life, and represents her father’s emotional network and interpersonal relations.

“I am a dancer. When I miss a person, recall a scene, or visualize an image, I will perform what I think of instinctively with my body. Propositions on Disappearance III is to ‘make’ my father’s body with my own body. Since people of my dad’s generation got ill and passed away, I suddenly realized that all the languages, intonations, and interactions that I was familiar with ... would disappear as people disappear generation after generation. And in the end my body will also disappear. When I am exploring and feeling my father’s body, it seems that I can exchange my life for some time with my father’s.”
